Unhappy Recognize this saw...?

Got a chance of getting this for next to nothing...anybody recognize manufacturer, etc...? Comments...? Poster doesn't know anything about it as it belonged to previous house owner (father-in-law)...he does know that it works. Have exhausted the possibility of getting any more information...about 1 1/2 drive to see it.

My own observations...looks like it tilts away from fence - seems to have hardware for tilting (good)...doesn't look like it takes an insert (?)...can't tell if it's 10 inch or not (?)...can't tell if slot allows for dado blade (?)...big motor (220/110 ?) can't tell by wire or connector...tracks look like 3/4 (good)...

Thanks in advance...Nick

I'm no expert in "old arn", but the cabinet looks sort of like a Darra James. The blade slot in the top looks the blade may not tilt, kind of like the Richards in this ad:
Richards table saw

The mechanism we see in the back of your pictures could be blade elevation--can't tell.

I see what you mean about the cabinet...pulled up a couple of images of James saws and it looks close...including switch position. I actually looked at one for possible purchase...

I thought it might be tilting based on the slotted arch on the back view image...but the slot on the table surface seems to contradict that...

Thanks for your thoughts...Nick

...You might have nailed it, Earl...If you look at the pedestal base closely you will see a distinctive pyramid shape...that same shape is on an image of a James saw...I hadn't spotted it earlier until your post made me look for it...

I'm goin with a James saw for the pool... (huh ? what pool ?)

...see here...what do you think...? the 95...?


Thanks, Earl....

WOW...what a find...thanks for the link, Ed...quite a bit out there. Not sure completely yet that it is the 95 but it seems the closest. I'm waiting for more pictures and will be going to look at it some time this week. I'll know for sure soon...Nick

If you are looking at it to restore for an antique that's one thing but if it's to use- use it off a boat anchor. It looks way too un handy and way too dangerous for me.

Googled images of a James saw and noticed the clear triangular shape on the base. The ad for it mentioned that it had also been sold as a Craftsman at some point. Looking at other pix of the Darra James saw, I don't see an insert on any of them. It sure looks like you're going to have to do a lot of work on that thing before you can do anything with it. Are you sure you have room enough in you shop for a marginal saw?
